VHF’s Evening Lectures series offers illustrated lectures that look at the history of Vancouver, covering the events, movements and people that have shaped our city. Since the first event in 2012, the series has included a diverse range of subjects and perspectives in over 50 lectures from more than 30 presenters. A listing of many of them can be found below.
VHF’s Evening Lecture series returns in person for the spring 2022 season. Lectures will run from 7pm to 8:30pm. Join us at University Women’s Club at Hycroft Manor to enjoy fascinating pieces of Vancouver’s history with a selection of speakers.
You can earn 1 Old School credit per Evening Lecture or Lunch and Learn, to a maximum of 3 towards VHF’s Heritage Conservation Certificate.
Due to speaker illness, we have cancelled the September 20th lecture ‘South Asians’ 119 years in Vancouver: Repair and redress of public opinion.’ VHF staff will be in touch with ticketholders regarding refunds and we hope to reschedule for a future date. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
